Some Crossfire action
I was researching the Macho, came across an article that suggested that Thermalright and a number of other manufacturers such as Prolimatech, Phanteks, Scythe, Noctua use a convex base that actually deforms the lid. http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1366-page2.html
Did you install the 120mm AIO after the Macho first? If the Macho performs better this might be why. I wonder if my Phanteks is the same way. Their I7 test cpu looks really warped though. The corners are all rounded off!
Thx. Im now running 2560x1080
I had the Antec Kuhler 620 and then I bought Macho.
Nice, those some 5870's like listed in your specs (Specs list one is why I ask )?
Also I love seeing so many people with that massive cooler, I had not seen many people in some time with that specific cooler which it is such an awesome air cooler. Its well designed to work in more situations than many I run across as far as ram clearance and everything, hows your temps going? I also had the Antec Kuhler 920 which I sold to a friend recently on a machine I tried awhile back (Went for a AIO system at one point using a Kuhler 920 for the CPU and 2 PNY GTX 580 LC editions to see what would happen.
Cool system, very clean interior!
it's very usefull to use in older games to improve aa and af
I use it in all games bwahahahaha
Took my rig apart to add the external radiator to the loop and clean the gpu block and my 780 stopped displaying when it had the block on, works fine with the stock cooler on.
I had it looking really nice with the tubing going out through a pci pass through but it started leaking so it got binned, had to do it the fugly way just to get back up and running.
Now i've got a 360mm monsta + 200mm Phobya rad cooling just a 4770k!, temp setup for now, had enough messing for today, time for some beer.
Not bad. I have 3x 240MM + 1x 120MM radiators cooling just my i7 lol
Very high cooling power you have there ! Best wishes to fix the problem with the GPU block !
Thanks, i may have it sorted soon ... and have a bigger case.
I really like high-powered mATX tower builds, nice one man btw is that a 180mm fan going into the front rad?
The hottest core is over 90C in Battlefield 4 64p.. But I don't care, as long it won't crash! And yeah I had an AIO too (Antec 620 V4 with 2 GentleTyphoon 1450rpm fans), but I like the air more..
edit: And yeah my PC is just like I had put in to the specs
Yeah it is.
Will there be fans on the back radiator? Its a monster!
I've got fans on it already.
Om nom nom. I purchased a second 780 for my main system. I do plan on a monitor upgrade at the end of the year, not sure what to get yet though. The downside to having sli is that it covers my only PCI slot so I can no longer use my Essence ST :'( first world problems.
Try this on for size, I see you have one open it might help you in your situation
Was going to suggest one, lol.
havent had internet on my pc for about 2 weeks, moved into a new flat and got a new desk! Edit: WOOOOP!
Damn, if I had desk and PC like that, maybe I wouldn't keep my open beer on the desk.
its not bad, slowly collecting things to bench for techpowerup! hwbot team.
still waiting to buy a 290, dimastech bench and pots!
thanks for all the thanks! feels like years since i been on!
I have a AMD A10 5800K and a MSI GTX 760... My A10 sucks so im going upgrade to a AMD FX 8350
Edit: Im posting photo's later.
